@tiger001 and @Mark - with respect and IMHO, the only “reluctance and resistance” I’m reading here is in response to the WhatAbout-ism-ness of statements like “product X does it”.
No single product will ever do it all, which is exactly why I have both Macs and PCs, oscillators from probably five different companies, and why I consider my SSP a complement to my 301, not a replacement. Being a lover of granular, I’ll always keep my Clouds AND Nebulae2 regardless of what enhancements come to the SSP in the future.
I think, after this forum and the SSP have been in the wild as long as the 301 has now been, it’ll be easier for the Devs to see a clear consensus of what enhancements will benefit the most users, and allocate precious time and resources accordingly. Remember, both products are designed, released and maintained by one or two people, each.
I’m not talking about bugs, BTW. I’m talking about Feature Requests and Changes. Also, I’ve found it’s good to keep in mind that many many many reported “bugs” are not fatal-flaws or showstoppers; they are often just a differing opinion on how a very specific aspect of the module behaves, or might behave in another, and often very specific context. I have not seen any resistance or reluctance to fix bonafide Bugs on the SSP.
I want to shout out to @bert and @celine (and Brian of OD) for personally monitoring and responding to their forum members and users!! I love my Teenage Engineering stuff, but their forum is not a place to have a conversation with the Devs. I think the biggest difference I see between the Percussa and OD forums is that the 301 users have had a few more years to get to know their instrument, and they seem to jump in and help each other out more; my perception is that Brian can therefore focus more on “showstopper bugs” on the unstable version of the next release. There’s nothing holding the Percussa forum back, IMHO; it’s just not as active yet.
Any professional composer reading this likely knows how toxic it can be to read forum/YouTube/whatever Comments on their work; in fact, it’s generally considered somewhat masochistic. I suggest we all remember when posting ANYTHING here that the venerable Golden Rule will go a long way to getting our valuable opinions and wishes read and considered reasonably in shaping the future of the SSP.
Unfortunately, sometimes anger and/or frustration or snark does seep into Feature Requests and Bug Reports, and I can only imagine that this overshadows the request itself, and worse: I fear it could drive our very human developers to go the route of some other (mostly big to huge) companies who don’t maintain a direct dialogue with their users.
Of course I’ve likely offended some, but I really don’t mean to! I just disagree that Percussa is reluctant or resistant to its users. I believe they are a tiny company with an awesomely BIG product, and one of its best features is that WE are encouraged to participate. But consider that some days even a dozen posts from three or four users, without other users jumping in where we can is probably like drinking from a fire hose for them!!
Edit: @Mark I totally agree with the post you just made while I was writing my “book”, LOL! TY!
